Submission requirements

Papers must be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Authors are encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimize references that may reveal the identity of the authors and their institutions. Relevant references to an author's previous research should not be suppressed but instead referenced in a neutral way.

Paper submissions should respect the maximum number of pages for each category (including figures and references). Papers must be submitted in PDF format. All accepted full and short papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by Springer. All papers should be anonymized and adhere the Springer format provided. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. After acceptance, a final, revised camera-ready version of the paper will be required in electronic form for the proceedings.

Full papers (max. 16 pages)

Full papers should report original work in the field of Ambient Intelligence targeting any of the featured conference themes. Papers should clearly state contribution(s) in the paper and the abstract. Papers making one clear, significant contribution are more likely to be accepted than papers making several lesser contributions. Papers must identify and cite relevant published work and explain how the paper furthers state of the art within the field of Ambient Intelligence. Full paper submissions must not exceed 16 pages in length including references.

Short papers (max. 4 pages)

Short papers should report original work addressing one of the featured conference themes. Compared to full papers, short papers can be more exploratory and preliminary in nature, provide only a brief summary of related work, but present a concrete contribution of a more narrow and specific scope. Papers must identify and cite briefly relevant published work and explain how the paper furthers state of the art within the field of Ambient Intelligence. Short paper submissions must not exceed 4 pages in length including references.

Formatting and submission guidelines

Paper submissions for all categories should follow the Springer guidelines for Proceedings.

Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form.

Authors of full and short papers as well as posters and demos are welcome to submit using the conference review system.
